The Oldest Dog in the World is a new two-act play by Cary NC resident, Jesse A. Lowe.  It's a story of an extra-ordinary dog and the lengths he goes to help his boy, Peter, in conquering a curse.  This curse was placed on Peter by the monster from under his childhood bed and it has had dire consequences...ruining his relationships & dooming Peter's life to mediocrity and failure.   

This is a quirky hero's journey with aid rendered by superheroes & Sasquatch!  Peter and his spectral pooch explore memories of Peter's childhood & encounter the monster and fight against its evil!  The action hits a fever pitch involving a high-stakes Dance Dance Revolution duel! Along the way Peter re-discovers his family, the small Oregon town he grew up in and maybe...just maybe, reclaims his life.

With your help we can rent the production space, build sets & print programs. At the successful conclusion of this campaign we can polish the show and will present the production for performance at Summer's end!

No pledge is too small! Every step toward our goal counts!  Without you this awesome story will never be told.
